Beast of the Night: Stephen Curry finished with 36 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and six three-pointers last night against the Nuggets. He shot 77 percent (13-17) from the floor, 57 percent (4-7) from the free-throw line and had one turnover. For the season, Curry is averaging top five numbers, which is a shade better than what was expected of him heading into the season. So long as he’s healthy, Curry will remain a fantasy beast.

Lines for Discussion:
Pau Gasol: 12-20 FG (60%), 1-1 FT (100%), 25 Pts, 14 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Blk, 2 TO; Gasol has double-doubled in his last four games, averaging 17.7 points, 14.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 blocks in that stretch

Arron Afflalo: 8-16 FG (50%), 5-5 FT (100%), 5 threes, 26 Pts, 2 Reb, 1 TO; Afflalo has been a big disappointment his season, but this was nice

Channing Frye: 8-17 FG (47%), 1-1 FT (100%), 4 threes, 21 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 2 TO; Frye has looked mostly solid so far in February and seems safer to start going forward

Serge Ibaka: 2-5 FG (40%), 2-2 FT (100%), 6 Pts, 9 Reb, 10 Blk, 1 TO; Believe it or not, this was Ibaka’s second 10-block game this month

Waiver-Wire Watch (four stars = must add; one star = keep an eye on him):
Klay Thompson: 19 Pts, 3 threes, 1 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO (*)

Ekpe Udoh: 2 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 5 Blk, 1 TO (*)

Goran Dragic: 11 Pts, 1 three, 4 Reb, 11 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 TO (**)

Patrick Patterson: 14 Pts, 6 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO (**)

Michael Redd: 11 Pts, 2 threes, 1 Ast, 1 TO (*)

Donte Greene: 10 Pts, 1 three, 4 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl (*)

Injuries:
Tyrus Thomas (eye): expected to play tonight

Sasha Pavlovic (wrist): day-to-day

Keyon Dooling (hip): day-to-day

Corey Maggette (hamstring): practiced yesterday and will likely return Saturday or Monday

Anthony Parker (back): out tonight

Jason Terry (hip): won’t miss any time

Jason Kidd (calf): practiced lightly yesterday; monitor his status

Zach Randolph (knee): may be ahead of schedule

Ersan Ilyasova (back): day-to-day

Keith Bogans (foot): out for the season

For Tonight:
It should go without saying, but watch Jeremy Lin as the Knicks host the Lakers.

See if Brandon Jennings can bust out of his funk against the Cavs. Also, see if Carlos Delfino can put up another strong line.

For Next Week:
5 games: PHO
4 games: CHA, DAL, DEN, DET, GSW, HOU, IND, LAC, MEM, MIA, MIL, MIN, NJN, NYK, OKC, ORL, PHI, POR, SAC, UTA
3 games: ATL, BOS, CHI, CLE, LAL, NOR, SAS, TOR, WAS
